This project works best for students completing a course in US or World History. Project asks students to create their own society, based on what they have learned about US society and pre-search investigation on 3 other countries. Students then create a visual presentation outlining every aspect of their improved society, including, economy, government, roles of citizens, rules, trade etc. Students also reflect on the difficulties they encountered when creating their society. Assignment is designed to be comprehensive in its analysis of all aspects of a society, the problems that arise and how to best manage them. It will take students approx one week to complete, and will require at least two days in the computer lab to gather information and to work on visuals. Project includes guided questions for students, a research chart for compare and contrast, detailed instructions and a grading rubric.
